ONE EYED GIRL – written by Nick Matthews and Craig Behenna and directed by Nick Matthews – is a gripping story about a psychiatrist, haunted by the death of a former patient, who stumbles upon a Doomsday cult and battles to save a teenage girl from its clutches.
Starring Tilda Cobham-Hervey (52 Tuesdays), Mark Leonard Winter (Healing, Van Diemen’s Land) and Steve Le Marquand (Rake, Vertical Limit), ONE EYED GIRL is distributed in Australia by The Backlot Films.
On winning the award, Nick Matthews said, “What a thrill, to have competed here in the heart of filmmaking and then to be recognised like this. I’m so proud of all the cast and crew and I thank everyone who supported us along the way. I’d like to think this win may mean we can share the film with a wider Australian audience.”
